LINK: Yes Bassist Chris Squire Talks Upcoming Tour, Hall of Fame and Near Super Group with Jimmy Page

File:Chris Squire, Lowiston, NY, July 2012.JPGThis spring the Progressive Rock legends Yes are going out on the road and playing three of their classic albums (The Yes Album, Close to the Edge, and Going for the One). Recently I got the chance to chat with Yes bassist and the only member to play on every single Yes album and tour, Chris Squire. During our discussion we talk about the up coming tour, his take on Rush getting into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, replacing legendary singer Jon Anderson and the near super group XYZ featuring two members of Yes and Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.

Q: This Spring Yes is going to go out play three albums in their entirety per night on tour. With so many great albums to choose from how did you land on the three that you chose?
Chris Squire (CS): I think we just sort of looked at everything, the body of work and we sort of wanted to…I don't think they are particularly more milestone albums than any others. There are a few others for sure, but I think we just liked the idea of the blend. I mean they're obviously from the seventies, but different parts of the seventies. We thought that they complimented each other.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
